The Computer Architecture module begins after Publishing On The Internet is complete. This is a twelve week module. 3 closed book assessments come very early during this module, and the remaining assessments are open book. The module looks at different aspects of how a computer uses and stores numbers and alphabetical characters. Binary and hexadecimal are referred to quite a lot. Finally, during the last few weeks of the course, you are required to, using assembler language, create a program of which the specifications are given to you by the lecturer.
